Description

If you don't know the science, your soil will suffer. In this two-day class, Bruce Neary takes the mystery out of soil science. He'll show you how to identify and correct soil conditions that create plant problems, including the proper way to read, analyze, and correct pH levels. He'll explain the soil's physical and biological relationship to plant growth in easy-to-understand terms and also discuss site analysis.

Bill Bamka of Rutgers Cooperative Extension joins this class to share his expertise on the chemical nature of soils.

Take this class in conjunction with Water Management and Drainage for a more comprehensive understanding of successful ornamental plant growth.
